Gubbröra, or Gentleman’s Delight, is a traditional Swedish dish which is great served as a canapé or light lunch – just the name is a talking point! Here, Christina Tencor shares her recipe; “I came to England from Sweden as an exchange student at The University of Sussex. The 6 months turned into nearly 30 years, when I met Ian, my husband, joint founder of Peter’s Yard. Food has taken us many places but I always return to family traditions for parties.”

  • 3-4 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 red onion
  • 1.5 tbsp butter
